THE NAME OF JESUS




How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believerís ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.


It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
íTis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.


Dear Name, the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding Place,
My never failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!


By Thee my prayers acceptance gain,
Although with sin defiled;
Satan accuses me in vain,
And I am owned a child.


Jesus! my Shepherd, Saviour, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.


Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
Iíll praise Thee as I ought.


Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath,
And may the music of Thy Name
Refresh my soul in death!


---Alternative verses---


Blest Name, the rock on which we build,
Our shield and hiding-place;
Our never-failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace.


Jesus our Saviour, Shepherd, Friend,
Prophet, and Priest and King,
Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,
Accept the praise I bring.


Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
O Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.


Jesus, our Saviour, Shepherd, Friend,
Thou Prophet, Priest and King,
Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,
Accept the praise we bring.


O Jesus! Shepherd, Guardian, Friend,
O Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.


Jesus! my Shepherd, Guardian, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.


Cold is the tribute of my heart,
And low my loftiest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
We'll praise Thee as I ought.


Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
Iíll praise Thee as I ought.


Till then we would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath;
And triumph in Thy blessed Name
Which quells the power of death.
